We're moving to Hogwarts!

Friday, November 2, 2012
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Well... I think this family is moving to Hogwarts!  After my daughter cruised through the entire Harry Potter series over the summer, she joined the Dumbledore Army of fans.  Unfortunately, it was a little late for her to thoroughly enjoy our trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last February!

It was amazing there, but very crowded!
However, she decided to make sure our Halloween was thoroughly Potter-fied.  She dressed up as Harry Potter himself (my daughter is NOT limited by these arbitrary things called gender barriers!).

Daddy got into the wizard mix, too.  My daughter's Girl Scout "cluster" (troops at her school) host a daddy-daughter Halloween dance every year, so Daddy accompanied Ms. Harry Potter as none other than Professor Snape!

A rather dashing Snape, huh?

Snape is giving Potter "the look."

Momma had to get into wizarding spirit, too!  I dressed up as Professor McGonagall for our annual Halloween party.

Our son, however, was not persuaded to join us in Hogwarts.  He preferred the Death Star.

And, just like we could never quite figure out which side Professor Snape was on, Daddy switched sides on us as well! After joining us in Hogwarts for the daddy-daughter Halloween dance, he showed up at our annual Halloween party looking like this:

Can you hear him making the Jabba laugh? Ha ... Ha ... Ha...
I don't think our Hogwarts adventures have ended.  My daughter has announced that she wanted a Potter-themed birthday as well!
